Established in 2015 by Northwestern Proteomics, the NRTDP pushes the boundaries of precision proteomics through new technologies and approaches to heart disease, cancer, neurological diseases and immuno-disorders, and to expand community engagement.

An ambitious project to develop and apply powerful new technologies to reveal the molecular complexity that underlies human biology.  Read the white paper.

A global alliance of academic institutions, corporations, and government agencies that aimrs to accelerate the comprehensive analysis of all human proteoforms, speeding developments in the fields of therapeutics, diagnostics, environment, and energy.

Human Genome Project for Proteins

Millions of molecular proteins are swimming through our body’s cells and many studies have discovered that these proteins are the main drivers of all human diseases. Scientists are now mapping proteins the way the Human Genome Project mapped genes. Northwestern’s Neil Kelleher is at the forefront of the Human Proteoform Project and explains how it could lead to more targeted and effective diagnostics and treatments for diseases.
